Harmonising food safety regs could make huge difference to food wastage

Dear madam / sir

I agree partly with the discussion of Mrs. Aleksandra Martinovic. Risk assessment may be one of the factors for decision to destroy the food, but not the only one. Harmful substances in small quantities or illicit substances in the food ,show possibility to manufacturing problems or dishonest intent producers of the food . The question is, who will make the right decision if new criteria will be in charge ? When is the safety of consumers in the foreground and when is the economy is in the foreground.
